My creative juices have been in high gear lately. Must be the simple fact that Spring is showing itself in small glimpses. My heart and mind are fueled by sunshine and warmer temps. Lots of DIY projects going on in our household, some bigger ones that I am anxious to share, but they aren’t quite finished yet.
I wanted a small wreath to hang over the glass door of my hutch, so I figured I would share how easy it was. You only need 4 supplies, again, maybe some of you won’t even need to make a trip to the store 😀 .
- Glue gun
- Grapevine wreath
- Garland or embellishments of your choice
The wreath is only 8 x 8. I wanted something petite for the door and to hang over the back of a dining chair, but I found this is still too big for the chair.
If you follow me on social media, you know by now I love the color pink. I purchased this berry garland from Hobby Lobby and right now all their spring floral is 50%!
I just cut sections off with wire cutters and hot glued them to the wreath. Just loop the ribbon around the wreath and hot glue the ends together.
I used suction cup hook on the back of the glass door, and poked a tiny hold through the ribbon. Just drape it over the door to fasten to the suction cup.
I used the left over twigs to spruce up a spring arrangement 🙂 .
Do you like decorating with greenery? I like to mix in natural elements and I am a sucker for decorative balls, and sometimes they aren’t cheap! When I was making my Easter topiarys, it dawned on me that I had some green moss. Talk about easy, but a messy project so make sure you lay newspaper down.
This is all you need. I used the moss that’s in a bag and you just pull it apart, but you can also find it in sheets. This may be a better idea. Hot glue small sections at a time and adhere your moss. Be careful, I burned myself a few times because of the texture of this moss.
I had a very sweet friend approach me this week to tell me she loves visiting my blog and appreciates the simplicity of it. I am not a big book reader, so I keep my blog posts pretty short and sweet mixed in with lots of pictures. Thank you so much for your continued encouragement friends, it means so much <3 .
Most of my shared inspiration is over the top simple, and I know you could figure them out on your own, but sometimes it just takes a nudge to just do them! Seeing a picture can spark your creative side, realizing, “I can do that” .
